"Wolf gets caught in his own trap -- he'll have Molly but she'll have his heart"
BIG BAD WOLF is a Faerie Tale Romance. Molly Kincaid
takes a basket of food to her grandmother every day, wears
her red velvet cape, and she always takes the shortcut
through the woods. One day on the path she heard a voice
ask "What's in the basket?" The voice belonged to Wolf
Wolf was feared and hated by the people in the Maine
town. So he was shocked and confused when Molly didn't
run but stood and talked with him. He called her Red and
met her on the path several times to try to find her
vice. He would tell her that all life's fun lies off the
path. He tries drink, gambling and jewels and nothing
works until he kisses her.
The best part about the book is that Wolf gets caught in
his own trap. He wants Molly and he knows that she wants
him too, but he can't buy her. So he thinks that he'll
marry her and have his cake and eat it too. He thinks
he'll have Molly but he doesn't realize until its too late
that she'll have his heart.
I truly enjoyed this book. I liked seeing Wolf realize
how much he loved and needed Molly. Molly loved him in
spite of what others thought. She never reacted the way
Wolf thought she should. She never feared him and she
never seemed to think the worst of him, she loved him.
In the end Wolf is telling his daughter to stay on the path
and Molly gets to remind him of saying all life's fun lies
off the path. Its great. I like how the Fairy Tale is
interwoven in the story.
